PLEASE NOTE WHEN BOOKING
The minimum stay is TWO nights, and we offer weekly discounts
We ask for a 10% deposit when you book, and payment of the balance 7 days before arrival. We accept prepayment by Credit/debit card.
You can cancel free of charge until 7 days before arrival (although the initial 10% deposit will be retained). We will refund within 7 days. You will be charged the total price if you cancel within the 7 days before arrival.
Booking in and out
In order for us to ensure all guests arrive to a thoroughly clean and tidy Drovers Retreat, we ask you to book out by 10.30am and book in after 3pm. We can possibly enable arrivals outside these times, but please let us know in good time, and we will try to accommodate your request.
Drovers Retreat is a no-smoking home
We welcome children of all ages. Baby travel cot and high-chair are available.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome, at a charge of £25 per visit. This area is predominantly sheep farming country. We ask you to ensure that your dog does not worry any or attack livestock whilst here. If in doubt, please keep your dog on a lead when out. Our farm neighbour uses Graig Farm to graze his sheep and sometimes his cattle.
We hope you will explore our designated visitor areas, such as the woodland, but please keep to these areas, as on a farm there are hazards, particularly for children.
'Elf and safety
Farms and older buildings were not developed originally with a book of Health and Safety rules. Please bear in mind that there are potentially hazardous places, and even the ancient flagstones in the living room are bumpy, so please keep safe using normal common sense. We have a few signs around the place to advise you of a handful of the more serious concerns. Please comply with these, as we don't want to discomfort any of our guests!
In the unlikely event that you find Wales cool (in the temperature sense), we have electric wall heaters and a log burner. For these rare cold times, we supply a basketful of logs, plus kindling and matches. If you require more wood, we charge this at £10/additional basketful.
There is also an electric clothes dryer which is an efficient way to dry both laundry and wet weather gear. The flagstones can feel cold to the feet, so come prepared.
We welcome electric cars, and charge £4/night for charging them.
